Meet Dr. Whitley Jagnanan
Hey there, Dr. Whitley here! You're probably wondering who I am and how I got here. I was a really sick kid. Colic, allergies, asthma... you name it, I had it. This continued from infancy to a young adult. I was a total nerd, loved science experiments, and from about the age of 4 years old, I knew I wanted to help people.
In high school, I was a competitive cheerleader (don't hold that one against me) and injured my back during a practice. I went to a chiropractor for a few visits, but honestly I didn't notice any difference. I was flexible, young and overall pretty healthy. I wasn't sure what this was doing for me and I didn't see or feel any difference in my spine. I chalked it up to the fact that "chiropractic just isn't for me". Boy, was I wrong!
In college, I had awful migraine headaches. I mean AWFUL! I would have debilitating migraines 3-5 times a week. On top of that, I was taking experimental drugs to try to stop or lessen my migraines headaches. Nothing helped. Until one day, I met a chiropractor at an event I was working at. He assured me he could find the cause to my headaches and help me with my suffering. I explained to him my previous chiropractic experience and told him "chiropractic wasn't for me" (yes, you can laugh).
Somehow, this doctor convinced me to come into his office. As soon as I stepped in the door, I knew he was different. The office smelled, looked and felt different than the previous chiropractor I had seen before.
This chiropractor examined my spine in a way that had never been done before, explained to me what was going on and started adjusting me. Within weeks I started coming off of my migraine drugs and was amazed at what a difference chiropractic was making in my health. At this point, the doctor asked me what I was going to college for. I explained to him that I was pre-med (because that's what all smart nerdy kids say they want to do in life - be a doctor). He asked me the question that changed the path of my life forever, "If you didn't like taking drugs, why do you want to prescribe them to other people?" At that moment, I knew I had to become a chiropractor. I knew I had to be different too. I knew my office needed to give people that gut feeling that this was different. I knew that I needed to give people explanations, give people the cause and give people hope. This was the moment I decided how I would help people. And the rest may be history. OR, it may be the future of your journey to health.
